That's truly shocking. Even a moron like me knows that is horribly awful design that sounds like it came straight from writing code on a COCO3.
I'm running a laptop with a sandybridge i5 and an optimus setup and both video card drivers load and then before the login screen appears they error out and give error code 39. I have a machine at work that is doing the same thing and it has an nforce chipset with a nvidia 8xxx series chip. The current solution is the #1) never reboot, and #2) when windows forces you to reboot, simply reboot and uninstall the drivers after windows loads without deleting the drivers. The rescan the hardware from the device manager and they just reinstall and work like nothing ever went wrong. Both of these machines were upgraded from Windows 7, but I don't think it makes a difference. I've tried the beta intel drivers for windows 10, the beta nvidia drivers for windows 10, the stock windows drivers, the windows 8 drivers. All do the same thing. Sometimes when I reboot, they magically don't dump after almost giving the login screen. This is the only real problem I have had left now. I managed to clean up the mess that the widows 7 installations were in. Both machines now pass SFC. I had to rebuild the hives. I'm really reluctant to toast my installations and start fresh as I have a lot of things installed and such that would be a major pain to set back up again. Also to go through all that and have potentially the same exact problem wouldn't be exactly cool. This doesn't seem to be as widespread so I'm really puzzled what's going on with my machines. Anyone have problems with this?
This. I have no desire to stop running win7 anytime soon unless win 10 is magically awesome which I sincerely doubt it will be given the win8 debacle.
As an unhappy lollipop user on a 2013 nexus 7 all I can say is don't bother. My free ram has dropped from 1gb to 400mb. I can't even keep two tabs of chrome in ram now. I'm seriously considering downgrading unless google gets this release right. Furthermore we are up to version 5 of android and there is still no way to push security updates? That's a pretty serious fail IMO. Google might want to rethink that strategy before it seriously burns them in the long run.
We should have ousted him in the first gulf war. It was only through American involvement that he rose to power anyways. Remember, he consulted with the US right up to the kuwait invasion.
Those sanctions worked great on Iraq. How many innocent children starved to death because of sanctions? How well are sanctions working out for the north Koreans? I know! they can just put some pressure on their government!
Guilt by association is a terrible and dangerous thing.
I'm no fan of taxes, especially income tax, but still see it as a means to an end. I pay taxes, Microsoft should too. If I don't pay taxes, I can go to jail. Microsoft gets a free pass due to loopholes and tax shelters. This needs to end.
So the copious amounts of greenhouse gasses humans are pumping into the stratosphere don't affect global temperatures at all despite the overwhelming evidence that the earth is indeed getting warmer? No extinction level events are happening? Just a localized anomaly huh?
The camera is stabilized. At one point the copter tilts enough that part of it is in the frame.
Because doesn't fracking fracture the strata and thus make the ground more unstable? Correct me if I'm wrong here. I don't know the magnitude, but it doesn't sound like a good thing to do overall. The whole thing is a bad idea period. How about just ending our addiction to oil? Nope. Can't do that while there is ground to rape and destroy so some cartel can stay in power for a few more years.
This is a good idea, but not a solution. Often you have no idea that the file is bad until after the fact, in this case years later. I've had mp3 collections get glitches here and there after a few copies from various drives. If you have no idea the data is bad in the first place, your backup of the data isn't going to be any better. I would say that all of my photography I've collected over the years has stayed readable somehow. I do check in lightroom every once in a while, but I wouldn't be shocked to find a random unreadable file. Not good really, but there's probably not much I can do other than make sure that my files are verifiable.
